Monsanto Tries to Patent & Control Natural, Non-GMO Tomatoes

In an appalling attempt to patent yet another seed, Monsanto has resorted to fraud to try to gain rights to a tomato which contains a naturally occurring resistance to a fungal disease called botrytis. The tomato is not genetically modified, but Monsanto manipulated documents to make the plant look ‘invented’ by biotech when the plant’s true maker is Mother Nature, herself.
Representatives of No Patents on Seeds! have called attention to this shady play of the biotech industry to try to outrun their failing genetic experiments. The original tomatoes used for this patent came from the international gene bank in Gatersleben, Germany, and they have shown this resistance for ages, well before biotech started monkeying with our food supply.     ***Read full article here***

Monsanto Security Tries to Shut Down Reporters at World Headquarters

Monsanto -- often dubbed "The World's Most Evil Corporation" is a $15 billion U.S.-based multinational agrochemical and genetically modified seed company. Despite the fact that millions all over the world consume Monsanto's GM seeds hidden in unlabeled food products every day -- primarily in the form of GMO corn, soy, oil and beet sugar -- the people of the United States and other parts of the globe are not allowed to know what they are eating. This is to the outrageous point that the company's lobbying firm is suing the State of Vermont for trying to mandate GMO labeling (after voters demanded it).
Yet, one of Monsanto's own official tenets in its company "pledge" is transparency.
THIS VIDEO shows what happens when you try to film on a public sidewalk outside Monsanto's world headquarters in Creve Couer, Missouri (a suburb of St. Louis) -- where no parking signs and restrictive city ordinances have already attempted to intimidate and shutter public demonstrations and news reporters.

10 Reasons to Avoid GMOs

The American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) urges doctors to prescribe non-GMO diets for all patients. They cite animal studies showing organ damage, gastrointestinal and immune system disorders, accelerated aging, and infertility. Human studies show how genetically modified (GM) food can leave material behind inside us, possibly causing long-term problems. Genes inserted into GM soy, for example, can transfer into the DNA of bacteria living inside us, and that the toxic insecticide produced by GM corn was found in the blood of pregnant women and their unborn fetuses.
